President Christopher L. Eisgruber and Provost Jennifer Rexford are ranked No. 2 and No. 9, respectively, on ROI-NJ's Top 10 higher ed influencers list released May 15. Susan Dod Brown Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering and Vice Dean for Innovation in the Office of the Dean for Research Craig Arnold is featured on the business publication's 2024 higher ed deans, directors and key officials list.

"The launching of the state’s AI Hub at Princeton, a key business initiative for the next generation, is just the latest reason why the university is regularly noted as the best in the country, if not the world," the ROI-NJ citation said. "At a time of severe challenges in higher ed, Eisgruber has deftly handled all potential crisis situations while transforming Princeton into a school that not only is a leader in liberal arts and computer science, but a model for equity and inclusion."
